Just a quick public service announcement to note that The Dream House, the installation by artists La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela that fills an entire floor of a Tribeca building with trippy lights and brutal, beautiful drones, will reopen on Saturday, beginning its 20th season. (Like Dia’s long-term Walter De Maria installations in New York, it closes each summer.)

The project is located at 275 Church Street, and is open late, from 2 p.m. to midnight. Perfect for a postprandial date activity! (It’s open Thursday through Saturday only.) Really, it’s one of New York’s great hidden secrets.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
